Special characters (other...
Well I finally got it! I hope this helps some of you. After reading what Clint Armstrong wrote here http://www.coffeecup.com/forums/topic-a … andards/38 I did what he wrote (could they hide this option any better?). After I did it my website still wasn't displaying properly (still no ï¿½ and Å™). So then I looked at some local websites (czech websites that properly display the ï¿½ and Å™) and looked at their code (when looking the the website click view/ page source) and i noticed something they had that my website didnt (in this case it was the text "<meta http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1250">" which was located at the very top of page after the "<head>" but before the "<title> text). Voila! my website now displays the ï¿½ and Å™!!
By the way I am using coffe cup html editor 2007. I hope this helps some of you and will save you time.
We understand there is a little confusion about this issue. The option you mentioned in preferences only controls how the text Editor displays characters, not how they display on the Web.
The meta tag you mention is correct, and there are dozens of them that control what character set you want your HTML document to use. We generally recommend using UTF-8 since it has the widest multi-lingual support for special characters.
The version of the HTML Editor you are using might insert a different charset value in this taq, so just be sure you use the correct one in all your pages and you should not have any more problems.
Let us know how that works out!
Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
